2011 HCL Match Report - Sarisbury Athletic III
A first-visit to the delightful Sarisbury Green, who were second in the League, and a keen contest was anticipated. When the first drinks-break was about to be taken the hosts were struggling on 53-5. Immediately after, Danny O'Connell (50 not out) was dropped when he had scored only 9. With captain Greg Horton (59) he added 114 for the sixth wicket. Prem Kumarasamy (3-39) wrapped up the innings with an all-bowled hat-trick, and they were all out for 193 (Etienne Rademaker 3-24). At 132-4 IBM were cruising to victory, but Etienne Rademaker (98) was adjudged LBW, and the rest of the batters were unable to capitalise on the promising start. 164-9 (Sean O'Toole 3-32).
